Many people have heard of Gibraltar, or at least the Rock of Gibraltar, but likely know little else about this small, British territory. Gibraltar may be known for only a few things: the massive limestone ridge that rises high into the sky overlooking Gibraltar itself (the aforementioned Rock), and its proximity to Morocco. Gibraltar is also a little piece of England in the south of Spain where prices are in British Pounds, shops and restaurants speak English, and they even have those iconic red phone booths on street corners.

For the night before our departure for Morocco, we booked our stay at the Sunborn Super Yacht Hotel in Gibraltar. The Super Yacht is docked in a fairly ideal location; it is a fifteen minute walk from the border with Spain and to the lift that brings you atop the Rock of Gibraltar. The hotel is right on the boardwalk, with access to plenty of bars and restaurants if you'd like a bite to eat when you're out on the town.

Upon entering the Sunborn Super Yacht, I immediately felt like a VIP as I walked through the grand lobby and reception area to check in.

That feeling continued as I opened the door to our room and my jaw dropped. Our modern room with a king sized bed and beautiful balcony overlooking the harbor was outstanding.

Everything was controlled by touch screen displays, curtains opened with the flick of a button, and an open bathroom added a romantic ambiance to our room.

Outside the room things were just as fantastic. The classy and sophisticated restaurant and bar was located on the uppermost deck, and overlooked Gibraltar and the bay.

The top deck also housed the best fitness center I've seen at a hotel, and had a gorgeous view to help you push through tough workouts. The gym was fully equipped with machines for weights and cardio, in addition to free-weights and more.

The infinity pool and adjacent bar are also located on the top level.

The Sunborn Super Yacht Hotel is magnificent. For anyone that enjoys gambling, you won’t want to miss the Sunborn Casino located at the stern either.

We reluctantly left the Sunborn to explore Gibraltar. There is not much really to see, and everything is far more expensive than in Spain. So, it came as no surprise that the trip to the top of Gibraltar Rock was pricey. If you want to go up yourself and walk the length of the Rock, explore some caves, and see the monkeys, it will cost you something in the realm of $100 USD. We decided, however, to drive our car up the Rock for free after 6pm.

We were astounded by the views sunset offered. What a view it was from the top of Gibraltar Rock at night.

If it fits into your schedule, sunset from the Rock of Gibraltar is not to be missed! For accommodation of the highest class, book your stay at the Sunborn Super Yacht Hotel. You most definitely will not be disappointed!
